FORBIDDEN ISLAND is published by The Wild Rose Press and released from The Wilder Roses, the Scarlet Rose line of erotic romance. The book is available in ebook from Amazon and other online vendors.

Where Murphy Abbott is concerned, Chantal Stevens can't stop asking herself...what if? Chantal met the incredibly sexy industrialist when he gave the commencement speech at her college graduation. He was polite and charming, yet the promise of ecstasy in his eyes mesmerized her. The moment he shook her hand, she knew she wanted to know every way possible.

Now, ten years later, Chantal misrepresents herself to finagle an invitation to his isolated and very private Caribbean island in order to seduce him and finally discover the answer. One thing she failed to consider...Murphy might have a hidden agenda of his own.

By Romance Junkies Reviewer: Chrissy Dionne

Mistress Bella Quickies Review has this to say about FORBIDDEN ISLAND:

"Forbidden Island had a very sexually stimulating plot line. Who wouldn't want to go back and answer all the "what ifs" that ran through their minds through the years about someone from their paths. Chantal's character was a woman bound and determined to get answers to her questions. Murphy's character was that hot rich industrialist who I couldn't help but get weak in the knees for. In just a short time, I was able to take a peek into the lives of these two very sensual people."

"If you are looking for a stimulating and sexually arousing read, then this is the book for you. It's short enough to read when you have just a few moments and you want to find a book to escape into. I do look forward to reading more of Ms. Gentry's work."

Excerpt (adult)

Her body language told him more than her words as she nervously shifted her weight from one foot to the other. Her gaze darted around the room landing everywhere except on him. It all screamed deception.

"Don't play games with me, Chantal." A grin tugged at the corners of his mouth as he imagined her out of her clothes and stretched across his bed. "Unless they start with everyone being hot and naked."


A crimson flush spread across her cheeks and forehead. Her tautly puckered nipples shoved against the soft fabric of her T-shirt, confirming what he had already noticed--she wasn't wearing a bra. Had he touched a nerve that caused her embarrassment? Or better yet, had he hit on an interesting way of spending the day that was acceptable to her?

Heated desire spread through his body, and his cock twitched as it came to life. He was more than willing to put his curiosity about what brought her to his island on hold in favor of a far more interesting pursuit. He took a swallow of his beer and carefully studied her while waiting for a response to his blatantly suggestive remark.

He didn't have to wait long.

A sexy smile slowly spread across her face. "What kind of hot and naked games do you like to play?"

That was all the encouragement he needed. There was no mistaking the twinkle in her blue eyes, a color nearly the same hue as her shorts and T-shirt. Her lipstick matched her fingernail polish, the same shade also decorating her toenails peeking out from her sandals. Her breasts rose and fell with her increased breathing. She had crossed his mind many times over the last ten years. And now fate had brought her to his personal piece of paradise for reasons he didn't least not yet.

No way would he allow this opportunity to get her into his bed slip through his fingers a second time. He could already taste her and feel his cock buried inside what he suspected was a hot, juicy and tight pussy. When he first met her, she had been a tempting treat. And now...somewhere during the intervening years she had turned into a tantalizing, vibrant woman whose mere presence grabbed his libido and wouldn't let go.

He walked around the end of the bar and stood next to her. He brushed feathery wisps of her blonde hair from her cheek, then trailed a fingertip down her arm to the back of her hand. The creamy texture of her skin stimulated his senses. "If you'd like to accompany me, I'll be glad to show you." Holding out his hand, he tilted his head to the side and shot her a look that was half question and half challenge.
